‘Tis the Season to be Jolly with GLAD

GLAD has been saving good food from going bad, helping out in the kitchen all year round, and is here for you during the fantastic festive season!

Here are some tips on saving food:
• GLAD loves leftovers! Being food smart is the best way to prevent waste and save money too (bonus!) Leftovers can be wrapped in GLAD Cling Wrap, refrigerated, and then used for sandwiches for lunch the next day.
• Cover bowls of food with GLAD Cling Wrap to prevent the food from drying out and “going brown”
If you want to end off a special family meal with something scrumptious; here is a GLAD recipe to keep you inspired!
